Pet friendly accommodation in the Cape Town City Bowl? A tough task but certainly doable for those looking to get the full Cape Town experience.
As incredible as Cape Town’s City Bowl is, it isn’t normally thought of as an easy getaway to bring your dog along. Maybe you’re just down for a business trip and want to bring your best fluffy friend with you instead of leaving them at home? Whatever your reason, we’ve found five great places that will welcome you and your pet. This is our list of pet friendly accommodation in the Cape Town City Bowl.
15 On Upper Orange
From R1500 per night
Boasting mountain, garden and city views, 15 on Upper Orange is located just 250 metres from De Waal Park and 10 minutes from Table Mountain. The self-catering accommodation offers stylishly decorated apartments that will provide you with a seating area and a full, modern kitchen (including dishwasher and microwave).
With four different booking options including a rooftop penthouse and an apartment with mountain views, be sure to get in touch and let them know that you will be bringing a pet.
Villa Belladonna Guest House
From R890 per night
A more affordable option and situated on the slopes of Table Mountain with views of Signal Hill, Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and Robben Island. At home in a quiet cul-de-sac on a tranquil avenue, the guest house is just a stroll away from the buzz of the city centre.
With a jacuzzi, garden space and plenty of balconies, expect your pooch to have quite the relaxing time. Check them out here.
The Blue House Guesthouse
From R1300 per night
The Blue House is conveniently situated in Tamboerskloof, close to the heart of the City Bowl and its bustling attractions. They proudly offer “a good night’s sleep” in the lush natural surrounds of Table Mountain and Lions Head.
While they obviously do take pets on request, take note that they don’t offer as much garden space as some of the other places on our list. If your dog is small and approaching its “senior years”, then the Blue House could be perfect. Check them out here.
Loader Street Magical Cottage
From R1950 per night
If you’re looking to be right on top of all the action and sights, this is your option. Loader Street Magical Cottage offers self-catering accommodation in De Waterkant. While the second most expensive on the list, the attractiveness of staying in a Greenpoint sub-area makes up for it.
With an outside balcony with views of the Harbour, you and your pet will both have the space to get your relevant business done. Check them out here.
702 Canal Quays
From R2150 per night
Alright, we will be honest, we saved our personal favourite for last. Imagine being able to stay practically IN the V&A Waterfront and not have to leave your pet behind. The 702 Canal Quays apartment lets you do just that (Yes, we do know it costs more).
The beautiful, air-conditioned apartment boasts panoramic views of Signal Hill, the Waterfront, the harbour, sea and the northern sweep of Table Bay. Situated on the 7th floor overlooking the canal, you’ll be just a water taxi away from the heartbeat of South Africa’s top tourism destination.
The apartment is single bedroom and doesn’t offer any grass for your dog. If you’re going on regular walks you won’t have a problem. 702 Canal Quays is truly a spot for the tourist with a miniature pinscher.
